Dortmund go top of Bundesliga

Champions Borussia Dortmund took over top spot in the Bundesliga, beating Ruhr valley rivals Schalke 04 2-0 for their seventh victory in the last eight league games.

In a heated “mother of all derbies” that prompted crowd trouble before the game and flares in the stadium, Robert Lewandowski and Felipe Santana scored either side of half-time to lift Dortmund to 29 points, one ahead of Bayern Munich who travel to Mainz today.

Borussia Moenchengladbach are in second place, also on 29, after beating Cologne 3-0 away on Friday.

Hertha Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen drew 3-3.
